My computer froze on the "starting windows" screen, so I turned my PC off and restarted and ran the diagnostic tests, and the results were, the hard drive error code was BIOHD-1 (communication error) and now the hard drive is making a clicking noise. Upon the diagnostic testing the Boot Path failed as well for BIOHD-3 (no bootable drives detected). So I put my windows 7 installation CD in and tried to do the "repair your computer", but when I get to the "system recovery options" screen, my OS is not listed. I clicked on the recovery tools anyways and tried to repair my PC, but the test results said startup repair could not repair the PC and the error message was MBR is corrupt. Is my hard drive dead? Is there anyway to get my desktop to come back up so I can save one file to a flash drive? I've even tried the F8 button upon bootup, but nothing comes up.
Thanks for the help!
